Ferris Bueller's Leisure Day Pub Crawl

Ever wake up in the mornings feeling like Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? You’re lying in bed, suffering, like you might be dying.  Well, “You’re not dying, you just can’t think of anything good to do.”  That’s why The Disco Amigos and The Organ Grinders are calling on you to play hookie. These two electrifying organizations have teamed up in honor of the 30th Anniversary of the release of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to host The Ferris Bueller’s Leisure Day Pub Crawl on Saturday June 11th.


So what are we gonna do? “The question isn’t what are we going to do, but what aren’t we going to do.”


The Crawl begins at Bayou Beer Garden (registration starts at 2:30pm and the fun kicks off at 3:30pm), where there will be a sausage-eating contest and someone will be named “Abe Freauxman, Sausage King of New Orleans.” From there we’ll head over to Finn McCool’s, where there will be a Danke Schoen lip sync contest. Then it’s Mid-City Yacht Club for a Sloan-Mr. Peterson Kissing Contest…”Do you have a kiss for Daddy?” as well as a Twist and Shout Dance Off.  Finally, we end our day of leisure at the Second Line Brewing with a Ferris Bueller themed costume contest, discount drafts, Saigon Slim's and St. Clair Pizza food trucks, and music by DJ Soft Talk.


The dopest DJ Fayard will keep the soundtrack rolling throughout the crawl.  Ferris swag, including sunglasses (to keep Mr. Rooney from recognizing us) and “Save Ferris” koozies, will be provided for all participants.  There will be free keg beer available to participants at each stop. Cost is $20 pre-sale, price goes up to $25 Wednesday June 8th, and $30 the day of. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite or on site the day of.  A screening of the film will be held at at Second Line Brewing on June 8th, where you can pick up swag, register, and find out if "Ferris passed out at 31 Flavors last night."


We know the energy you will bring to this fun march and we hope that you can make it.  We also hope you’ll share this invitation with your members and all of your friends and join us for what is sure to be a great event.  If you would like to purchase a ticket, please follow this link: saveferris2016.eventbright.com


Just remember…“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while you could miss it.”


Super Amazing Hugs,


The Organ Grinders and the Disco Amigos
